    I'm normally quite the sucker for time travel tales, and the medieval period has always been a fairly reliable setting when it comes to enjoyable jaunts back through time. However this three-parter cooked up by Mike Grell nicely earn itself the label of half-baked, as it never quite manages to be entertaining enough to make me overlook it's rather clumsy elements, and it takes itself far too seriously to be enjoyed as camp. I mean we have a villain who never comes across as all that dangerous, as Tony manages to have a pretty easy go of it against the various threats she sent his way, in spite of the fact that his armor is far from being fully functional. There's also the rather hard to miss soap box preaching that takes place when this villain begins her villainous rant about environmental issues, though why Mike Grell would have the villain of the story delivering this message does seemed to send out a mixed message, if his goal was to raise awareness about this issue.
